Montevetrano Winemaker dinner
Montevetrano winemaker dinner with Pasquale de Pinto
Founded in 1985 and counting only 12 acres under vine, Montevetrano has been, from it's very inception, a labor of love. Silvia Imparato and her family run this stunning vineyard in the Contrada Montevetrano, located in the province of Salerno. She works with consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella to produce what has become an icon of Southern Italy. Silvia indulged in wine as a hobby until she decided to rebuild her family’s vineyards in Montevetrano, in the oft-underestimated region of Campania.
Montevetrano takes its name from a medieval castle that dates to Roman times. A former property of the French Bourbons, the estate itself was the inspiration for this blend of French varietals with the Campanian king of red grapes - Aglianico. Pleasing scores of wine lovers around the world with its distinctive character and rich spectrum of flavors, Montevetrano is one of the most sought-after wines from Italy.
We'll taste 4 vintages of this iconic wine (2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012) side-by-side with a custom menu by Chef Allen Evans. We'll also try the Campania Aglianico Core is a new wine that sees fruit sourced from vineyards in Guardia Sanframondi (In Benevento) as well as San Cipriano Picentino (in Salerno).
Not to be missed if you love Italian wines!
